I'm wondering which is more popular here, the 8x8" or the 12x12" album?

I think most of us around here have done both sizes, but the 12x12 tends to be a bit more common, mostly because you fit more pics in one LO and that seems to be an attractive detail when one starts scrapbooking.

I have a tendency to buy 12x12 because I am a photo-a-holic. I need lots of room to include lots of photos.

Depends on what I'm working on. I've done 8x8 for the wedding of DS and D1, 8.5x11 for my recipe book, and 12x12 for DH & me, DH's military book. and my BOS book.

I'm currently putting together a 6x6 for my neighbors that just had a baby (unexpected because the wife was told she couldn't get preg).

Here, I think it is mostly the 12 x 12" because more embellishments and/or photos and such fit on the page.

Both for me...I've probably done equal # of each!!! Just depends on what the sb is about/for and the # of photos you will be using in it!

I do 12x12 for my family albums (my kids) one for each year, and 8x8 for my pets album, and 8.5x11 for my book of just my layouts (my friends and stuff). I also do a 9x9 album for my childhood pictures.

I am a multi-pic scrapper and rather OCD so I find the 12x12 books to be more my style. I try to come out of my box occasionally but I find myself creating uniform LOs...example:

I mostly use 12 x 12. I do have one 8 x 8 for my christmas card each year and and 8 1/2 x 11 for my pets. But I prefer 12 x 12. I would probably do 8 x 8 if I was doing a gift album though.

12x12 for my albums (I love to put multiple pics on a page) and 8x8 for gift albums (I usually don't have as many pictures to put in them). My sister loves 8.5x11.

I love 12x12 cause you have more space to work in but then again i love mini albums too!
